Newburgh Library Collaborative
The combined resources and services of three major libraries are available to all of Newburgh through the Newburgh Library Collaborative.
That’s over 500,000 books and 100 library staffers working for you.
WHAT IT MEANS
The Newburgh Library Collaborative (NLC) strengthens educational opportunity in Newburgh by providing access to our collective resources, offering research support, and teaching information literacy skills at every level.
Participating libraries include:
- Newburgh Free Library
- SUNY Orange (Newburgh and Middletown campuses)
- Mount Saint Mary College
- Newburgh Free Academy
WHAT YOU GET
The NLC libraries provide in-person loan of library materials, reference service, and onsite use of collections to any eligible member of each participating library.
Policies regarding the use of materials and resources may vary at participating libraries. The lending library’s policies apply to all borrowers.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
Anyone with a valid library card from one NLC library plus appropriate identification will be issued a card by any of the other NLC partners. Newburgh Free Library users must present their card plus photo identification; academic library users must present their card and institution-issued identification.
Please note: The Newburgh Free Library cannot issue library cards to patrons that live in another Library area within the Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS).
